How to Debugging mutual-authentication SSL handshake?

Hi Guys, I am new to SSL. I have got a load balancer that is configured for mutual-authentication SSL. As far as I am aware, the load balancer has been configured with an Entrust certificate and has been installed with our own CA as a Trusted Root. Client-side, I have got our CA installed as a trusted root and a signed certificate from the CA as a personal cert. When I connect using Internet Explorer I get prompted to choose a certificate and the client certificate is there but once I select it the page fails. Connecting with my Java app, with Entrust in my truststore and the client .p12 in my keystore I get SSL handshake failure. Using OpenSSL I get the following: openssl s_client -connect xxx.xxx.xxx:443 -state -nbioLoading ‘screen’ into random state – doneCONNECTED(000...

Agritech Impact Assessment Study

NASSCOM is planning to conduct a study that will showcase the strength of Indian agritech sector to the world. As a part of the study, a reputed agency will be sent to the field to document how technology has impacted the lives of customers/farmers. This document will be shared with Central and state governments in India and relevant foreign governments too.  We are inviting all startups and agritech companies to send us the following details:   Technology(ies) used: Intended outcome/impact to be studied:  District: Beneficiary (farmer, corporate client, fpo etc): Sample size (rough estimate of number of farmers affected): Please consider areas where the technology has been implemented for at least a year and where the outcome is easy to measure. We will share the next steps with those who...

How Financial Institutions are Turning AI into RoI

Artificial Intelligence is more than just automating banking services. It’s the culmination of innovation and technology in an industry that relies heavily on automation. Customers can already perform many of their ATMs’ services and other banking requests on mobile devices rather than physically visiting the bank branch. AI systems help banks save cost, improve RoI, and increase customer base. It is estimated that financial institutions that invest in human-machine collaboration and AI will boost their revenue and create new employment opportunities. BFSI firms in India have invested over USD 170 Mn in 2017 on AI related initiatives and are expected to invest over USD 4.5 Bn by 2025. In order to fully benefit from the potential of AI, Financial Institutes in India need to accept that AI h...

Will Lack of Innovation Kill Recycling?

Recycling is getting is getting lots of media attention of late.  It’s been on this blogger’s mind based on personal experience with my own trash collector.  A previous blog was dedicated to the poor change management practices of that provider in instituting a price increase due to higher recycling costs.  I stand by my position that had this service provider practiced better change management, they could have saved themselves a lot of grief.  Since the previous blog, this author has attempted to learn more about the recycling industry and it has been an education!  The conclusion is, recycling is a manufacturing process in dire need of innovation. What Happened? In the US, consumer recycling began in earnest about 1990 to combat the growing amount of trash sent to landfills.  Enabled by ...

Digital Transformation Requires Secure IoT Supply Chains

Digital transformation has become an imperative for industrial companies and infrastructure operators.  Whether it’s called Industrial Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, or Digitization, companies want to leverage new technologies and broad connectivity to improve performance and enable new business models.  Managers of facilities see opportunities to improve operational efficiency and asset performance.   Equipment suppliers want to extend service offerings and increase the value of their products.   These developments offer significant benefits, but many companies are concerned with the increased cyber risks.  Insecure devices can offer new entry points for attacks.  Insecure connectivity can enable lateral movement and expand attacker access to confidential information and critical...

IoT-enabled Advanced Metering Infrastructure

Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) measures energy, water or gas consumption and provides this information to users, suppliers and utility companies. Smart meters, communication network between customers and utilities, data acquisition and analysis systems are key components that make up an AMI. Many companies, big and smal,l have forayed into this space with solutions on power grid including AMI, remote health monitoring of infrastructure, cloud solutions for better access to data, data analytics, and multiple level security for access to this data.   Several business needs and outcomes are driving users to invest in smart technologies: Efficient transmission of electricity Quicker restoration of electricity after power disturbances Reduced operations and management costs for utilitie...

Internet of Things in Industry 4.0 – When the Machines Take Over

“When we talk about the Internet of Things, it’s not just putting RFID tags on some dumb thing so we smart people know where that dumb thing is. It’s about embedding intelligence so things become smarter and do more than they were proposed to do.” – Nicholas Negroponte Sometimes, it feels as if everything that can be said about internet of things has already been said. We’ve been told that it’s the beginning of a new world, and we’ve been told that it’s the end of ours. Sci-fi stories have filled us with both awe and dread. We are never sure we are fully in control but, like a moth to a flame, we find ourselves pushing the envelope just that little bit more. It might surprise many to know that IoT, even as a working model, has been around since the 1970s when a Coke machine at Carnegie Mel...

Is the Future of Electric Trucks Now?

Electric trucks have been in the news a lot lately, especially as Tesla has made multiple announcements regarding the highly anticipated release of its Class 8 semi-truck. However, the state of Tesla’s supply chain, along with the skepticism regarding the design of the truck, had the public wondering if it would actually come to fruition. But Tesla is clearly not the only company working to get an electric truck to the market. There are also a variety of electric trucks already on the road, most notably Class 6 trucks for parcel deliveries. With more interest in zero-emission trucks, the market is poised for growth. Pic- Class 8 Electric Trucks Tesla’s announcement of a planned electric semi-truck raised a lot of eyebrows, especially given the brash predictions from Elon Musk. Specifically...

Deployment Challenges & Best Practices of AI implementation in Financial Services
